Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Add the chicken thighs to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven for 15 min or until cooked through (no pink meat!)

Once cooked, remove the tray from the oven and set aside

2 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Meanwhile, boil a full kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until beginning to soften

3 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

While the onion is softening, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s], Henderson's Relish, dried oregano, dried basil and tomato paste in 200ml [400ml] boiled water – this is your stock

4 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Once the onion is beginning to soften, add the chopped garlic and cook for 30 secs

Add the chopped tomatoes and stock with a pinch of sugar and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook for 10-15 min or until thickened slightly – this is your sauce

5 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Meanwhile, melt 30g [60g] butter in a pot over a medium heat

Once melted, add 30g [60g] flour and stir with a wooden spoon for 1 min or until a sandy paste forms – this is your roux

Add 350ml [700ml] milk gradually & whisk for 5-8 min or until a smooth, thick sauce remains

Remove from the heat and season generously with pepper – this is your béchamel

6 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Grate the cheddar cheese

Add the baby leaf spinach to a colander and pour the remaining boiled water all over it until bright green and wilted

Run the wilted spinach under the cold tap and pat it dry with kitchen paper

Shred the cooked chicken apart using two forks and add it to the sauce – this is your chicken mixture

7 Chicken & Spinach Lasagne With Rocket

Add half the chicken mixture to an oven-proof dish, then top with 2 [4] lasagne sheets

Repeat this process again, then add a layer of the wilted spinach followed by the remaining lasagne sheets

Tip: You may need to layer differently depending on the size of your dish!

Cover with the béchamel and grated cheese and cook in the oven for 20-25 min or until the pasta is cooked
